Hi! I’m Kelly and welcome to our 2nd Chance Restoration page!  We are a family owned business started by accident after I lost my corporate job due to layoffs. I needed to provide an income somehow, and even though I had been painting small furniture pieces since I was young, it never occurred to me to take a hobby and passion and turn it into something bigger.  We started small with a desk here and there, and then bureaus, etc.  Then we noticed a need for cabinets to be transformed (bathrooms AND kitchens), and banister updates, and whitewashing of fireplaces etc…  We pride ourselves on seeing a need and being the ‘go to’ place for so many who are looking to do some refreshes to their homes.

Here we are more than 9 years later (10 years it will be this October!) with hundreds of clients, a 95% referral rate, countless pieces that have been restyled and thousands of cabinet doors that have been transformed. We love working with our clients who are striving to keep their family heirlooms as showcase pieces and are excited to see what each year has in store for us. I hope you’ll join us on the journey and enjoy looking through our website for inspiration…

Mr 2nd Chance wants to golf, so he’s helping get this weeks kitchen doors cleaned first. This is what happens in the home based studio when he needs to get in the groove 🤣

Kelly was amazing to work with! She met with us and helped us put together our new kitchen look- counters, backsplash, and ultimately the “right” color to paint our dark cabinets. Kelly’s work is impeccable and the process of refinishing our cabinets was painless. No mess! I highly recommend Kelly to repaint cabinets. She brought our dark, dreary kitchen back to life!

I can not say enough about Kelly and 2nd Chance Restoration. Kelly just finished painting my 20 year old Natural Maple kitchen cabinets. The cabinets were in near perfect condition and though I wanted a new look I was a bit anxious about the cabinets looking painted. Kelly has done numerous pieces of furniture for me and my family over the years some of which she has labeled as her biggest headaches and everything has come out better than our expectations. This project however was major if it didn’t come out well. Kelly didn’t disappoint, we had her do the cabinets while we were on vacation so she could come and go as she pleased. We returned to a beautiful “new” white kitchen. It looks better than we ever imagined and they truly look like new cabinets. I can’t believe we waited so long to do it. Everyone who has walked in my house can’t believe they are the same cabinets! It is a pleasure to work with Kelly, she is thorough in her estimating and explaining options and the scope of the work. She returns calls, texts and emails quickly. Her prices are always fair and when we returned home there was no sign that they had ever been there, she is extremely neat. I without hesitation recommend her and 2nd Chance Restoration for all refinishing projects.
